According to District to Police Commander for Akropong East District, Supt. Bright Boafo, who spoke to Citi News, confessed that although the wheels of justice have begun to turn on the case of the Chinese suspects, their safety, and that of their belongings could no longer be guaranteed.

The group of Chinese individuals are suspected to have shot and killed a 25 year old Ghanaian youth by the name of Nana Boamah. Initial reports had it that the shooting was an accident due to an altercation between two Chinese in a casino.

Later reports revealed that the incident occurred when a local plumber asked the victim to stand in as a witness when a Chinese individual refused to pay a service fee of Ghs150 for services rendered.

We thought it wise not to keep them at the Wassa Akropong Police Station for fear that the youth may vandalize or demand a release for instant justice,” he said.

Other than his own security concerns regarding the case, Supt. Bright Baofo stated that the Regional Commander had been to the area too, and that he also "directed" that the case be investigated at the regional office.
